My Very First Ode to My Guru His Eminence Tsem Tulku Rinpoche (23/11/2004)

1_candle_7010You showed forebearance to us, like a mother to her only child,

Yet like children, we disappoint you, time and again

Your compassion is immense, your love bountiful

Your patience is immeasurable, you were never reticent in your guidance

Yet like children, we have not shown gratitude,

When will we learn to cherish your kindness but only by developing Prajna Paramita

It is true, a Master motivates Himself daily

To turn the dharma wheel, for the sake of all

We should draw strength and inspiration from the Master, a Buddha to us all,

Without whom, we are like sheep without a shepherd

Lost in the wilderness of samsara”
